The Vegas Golden Knights get to stay at home as they take on division rival, the Edmonton Oilers. After losing two straight games, the Knights are going to be looking to turn that around against the Oilers.
The Vegas Golden Knights get to stay at home as they look to reverse their fortune. After losing multiple key players the last two games, I’d assume that they will be looking to not lose any more players against the red hot Oilers. Okay, now that I got that out of the way, let’s talk about the game for real.
So going back to what I was saying, the past two games the Knights had lost: Mark Stone, Max Pacioretty, and Alec Martinez. Now, not only did they lost three of their best players, but they have also lost back-to-back games. It’s still early on in the season so it’s easy to overreact but losing three straight games, two of which have come from division rivals, it’s not a great look. So with that being said, they will look to come away with the win tonight against the red hot, Edmonton Oilers. So what can we expect the lines to look like tonight against the Oilers?
The lines haven’t been released yet, so it’s going to be based upon projection.
Peyton Krebs-Chandler Stephenson-Nicolas Roy
Jonathan Marchessault-William Karlsson-Reilly Smith
Evgenii Dadonov-Nolan Patrick-Keegan Kolesar
William Carrier-Jake Leschyshyn-Mattias Janmark
Nicolas Hague-Alex Pietrangelo
Shea Theodore-Zach Whitecloud
Brayden McNabb-Dylan Coghlan
Robin Lehner, Laurent Brossit
Those lines were based upon projection from the lines at practice yesterday. Now you may notice a familiar name back in the lineup for the first time this season: Mattias Janmark. After missing the first three games of the season while in Covid protocols, he officially returned to practice yesterday. Now, if DoBoer doesn’t feel he is ready for in-game action, it’s likely that they will give Brett Howden the start on the fourth-line.
Now I know some of you may be questioning if Lehner is going to get the start yet again, and as for how it appears right now, yes. However, many things could change overnight or even during the day, that may chance DoBoer’s mind.
